Updated and revised, this classic work is a must-read for every student of wildlife management and every professional seeking to become a better manager.

Wildlife professionals can more effectively manage species and social-ecological systems by fully considering the role that humans play in every stage of the process. Human Dimensions of Wildlife Management provides the essential information that students and practitioners need to be effective problem solvers. Edited by three leading experts in wildlife management, this textbook explores the interface of humans with wildlife and their sometimes complementary, often conflicting, interests. The book's well-researched chapters address conservation, wildlife use (hunting and fishing), and the psychological and philosophical underpinnings of wildlife management.

Human Dimensions of Wildlife Management explains how a wildlife professional should handle a variety of situations, such as managing deer populations in residential areas or encounters between predators and people or pets.

This thoroughly revised and updated edition includes detailed information about

• systems thinking
• working with social scientists
• managing citizen input
• using economics to inform decision making
• preparing questionnaires
• ethical considerations

Reviews

Any college-level collection strong in conservation and resource management as well as wildlife issues will find this an important work.

We recognize, thank and praise the outstanding unique and innovative work of the three editors... who planned this book, organized the contributors' material, and presented it skillfully in this major research effort.

Though the focus is wildlife, this lucid and comprehensive work on 'human dimensions' would be a handy reference for any land or natural resources manager.
